All across the U.S., there are thousands upon thousands of beautiful, high-quality, and long-lasting tile installations which should be highlighted as examples of the work done by qualified labor as included in the TCNA Handbook. However, when the very sad examples of extremely poor work are seen, they should be reviewed and presented as a learning tool for the tile placer who needs to improve his or her skills.
Mapei’s Ultraflex LHT SG is a standard-grade, non-sag, nonslump, polymer-modified, large-and-heavy tile mortar and thin-set mortar for interior/exterior installations on floors, walls, and countertops.
